Police in California
got a surprise when a bear
stood up on two legs, opened the door to a facility and then wandered in as if it worked there.
“We had an unexpected visitor
last night at the facility,” California Highway Patrol’s Donner Pass division wrote on Facebook on Nov. 18.
The footage shows the bear step into the commercial vehicle enforcement facility in Truckee, near Lake Tahoe, then drop down to all fours. It wanders past some vending machines and out of camera range.
A few moments later, the bear casually strolls back out. Two police officers follow.
On Saturday, the bear was back, caught on camera in the facility’s parking lot.
“Our bear friend made a return visit
,” the department wrote.
Bears in the area are searching for food for up to 20 hours per day
as they prepare for hibernation, the United States Forest Service noted on its website.
